Here’s how you describe your skills on a resume:
- List job-relevant skills in the skills section of your resume (find them under “Required Skills” in the job listing)
- In your work experience section, explain how you used your skills to achieve results. For example, if you have good organizational skills, write something like “Organized 47 training workshops to improve team performance.”
Always use numbers when describing skills in your experience section. Numbers give hiring managers insight into what you’ll be able to achieve if they hire you.
You should also describe your skills on a resume by including a mix of hard and soft skills. Hard skills are technical skills needed to do a job, like being able to drive. Soft skills are related to your personality, like people skills.
